I would be WAY more comfortable replacing the tub instead of a half-support solution + patch job that may fail in a few years.
I can see where you need some evidence. This is a tough one. If you did it yourself it is your word against theirs. If you hired someone to do it then they would be the independent witness.
What I would do it to try and get the fixes done from their end. Talk to your real estate agent and see what they have to say. It seems obvious to me that there was this issue that the sellers knew about when they sold you the property and if they didn't list it in the disclosures then they need to pay up.
